Dear Wee Qar ,
Indeed, the journal is indexed in Web of Science from Clarivate (no longer Thomson Reuters). In the so-called Master Journal list you can check in which index of Clarivate a journal is included: https://mjl.clarivate.com/homeThe journal is included in the JCReport 2021 (see enclosed file) but still indexed in ESCI index (and consequently still no impact factor).
Some here seem not willing to understand that by definition there is only one impact factor (for journals indexed in SCIE/SSCI index of Clarivate). As indicated in numerous replies the journal IS indexed in Scopus and received an alternative impact factor called CiteScore (assigned by Scopus property of Elsevier, so another company).
Since the journal is indexed in Scopus it might be an indication that this journal is a safe choice however as indicated in my reply of March 28th, 2020 and by Sura I.Mohammed Ali the publisher behind this journal might be suspect. Read carefully and decide for yourself.
Best regards.

impact Factor of IJACSA from RG
28th Mar, 2020
Rob Keller
Charlemagne College, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Dear Galya Georgieva-Tsaneva and those who raised additional questions in this entry,
Indeed this journal is indexed by Clarivate:
In the ESCI database, this means the journal is now evaluated for inclusion in SCIE and only when this happens they will get an impact factor (so for now: no impact factor)
And yes, the journal is indexed in Scopus since 2018:
So the journal is now in the middle of the two year evaluation before the final decision to be included in Scopus (and assignment of impact factor and Cite score: so right now they have not).
Normally I tend to say that with these inclusions in serious indexing it is pretty safe and this journal (and publisher behind it) is legit. However looking at the discussion about the publisher “Blue Eyes Intelligence Engineering and Sciences Publication” here on RG:
Where basically three of their journals were (after an evaluation of two years) discontinued per February 2020, I feel some hesitation. There is a chance that researchers can be disappointed when the journal we talk about here might be discontinued next year. The thing is that beside this discontinuation issue:
The publisher behind this journal is “The Science and Information Organization (SAI)”:
and this publisher is (like the Blue Eyes one) included in the Beall’s list of potential predatory publishers:
(you find them under the S). By itself a warning sign but not enough to jump into conclusions. They have been accused of organizing bogus conferences and a (falsely) claimed collaboration with Springer however one of their latest conferences:
Is indeed published in one of the advanced series of Springer, see for example:
So is this journal (and organization behind it) predatory? Is it a safe choice? I am not sure. The indexing (for the moment) in serious services like ESCI and Scopus and their conference papers that are published in at least one the proceedings of Springer give a solid impression. But as said above be aware that their inclusion in for example Scopus is still under evaluation.
Sorry for the long answer but sometimes things aren’t that black and white.
Best regards.

CiteScore calculation is based on Scopus data, while Impact Factor is based on Web of Science data.CiteScore includes all document types indexed by Scopus, include articles, reviews, letters. Impact factor = # of citations to all items published in that journal in the past two years (divided by) # of articles and reviews published over those past two years referencing those citations

Dear M. Assam ,
As indicated by Daler Ali and as said in my earlier reply from March 28: this journal is indexed in the ESCI database, this means the journal is now evaluated for inclusion in SCIE and only when this happens, they will get an impact factor.
The inclusion (and thereby the assignment of an impact factor) happens once a year approx. in June. So, the first possible moment where this journal might have an impact factor is June 2021.

It is listed in Scopus (and, consequently, in Scimago). It has a SJR (Scimago impact factor) of 0.156 in 2019 (Q4 in Computer Science - miscellaneous), and a CiteScore (Scopus impact factor) of 0.6 in 2019.
On the other hand, it is not listed yet in SCIE - Web Of Science, so it does not have the Journal Impact Factor (JIF), ie the ISI/Clarivate impact factor.

Why in the internet i found that IJACSA has 1.3 as impact factor
There is a website to verify if this is true?
24th Oct, 2020
Rob Keller
Charlemagne College, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Indeed, if you just search for the journal and impact factor some vague site suggests an impact factor of 1.3. However, keep in mind that there are a lot of so-called misleading metrics around on the net:
The only ‘authority’ that can assign impact factors is Clarivate (by indexing journals in their SCIE or SSCI database).
As indicated by Mahmood Mscs and in my earlier replies one can check for the most current indexing:
For your convenience I include the most recent impact factor list (see enclosed file).

They asked me to pay and sent for me the link. The required information is paper title, author name, email and mobile.
My question is : How can I pay without any unique identifier for author or paper ? Without an account ?
In addition, they didn't send me the reviewer notes. They will send them after payment.
Is that standard way for this journal ?

According to your first question... it is better to find the local person of the country who will pay on your behalf else follow the instructions given by the journal.
Secondly, It does not matter what is the reviewers report.
If the published paper, it is okay...
(In my case) But you may not get any benefit from this publication.
Because of the Impact Factor.

In every research- developing country, there is a Journal recognition system. In my country, IJACSA is a non-recognized journal.
The publications in the non-recognized journals can not be used for job or promotion.

Dear Ramzi Jaber as indicated in the various replies above, this journal has no impact factor (since it is not indexed the Clarivate's SCIE). See also my previous reply on October the 24th.
The 'impact factor' you mention is as explained by Alessandro Sebastian Podda the so-called CiteScore (an alternative impact factor introduced by Elsevier's Scopus). But acccording to the definition this is not THE impact factor. It is a similar kind of metrics though.
